#207 Expatriation, identity loss and the art of self-reinvention, with Nicole Webb

Like it or not, our identity are oftentimes inextricably linked to what we do as our profession, and as someone who previously worked outside the home, China's supporting expat spouses find themselves struggling when that bit of our lives is suddenly stripped away. That apparent loss of identity, mixed with culture shock, and adjustment challenges, can throw supporting spouses off kilter. Ally's guest on this show, Nicole Webb, is no stranger to the process of identity loss. In her mid-thirties, Nicole was at the top of her game as a news reader for a prominent Australian news channel. The idea of going abroad had no appeal; yet almost six years and two assignments later, Nicole has successfully reinvented herself, created a business that's mobile and is excited about the possibility of future assignments. What hurdles did she have to climb over and how did she manage to find herself and settle into a brand new skin? Tune in to find out! // Find more online at http://limitlesslaowai.co
